My First Play-Date With Waltzingmouse Stamps.

I was absolutely thrilled to have been introduced to Waltzingmouse Stamps last year and I have no idea how on earth I managed to live my crafting life without them.  I adore everything about this magnificent company and the amazing talent that seems to gracefully and joyously surround and contribute to it.

Prior to now, I hadn't managed to get myself organized enough to participate in their challenges (well actually, I just didn't have the confidence to play amongst those so supremely talented as the beautiful bevy of crafters assocoated with Waltzingmouse Stamps). So whilst I seem to momentarily have plucked up the courage to give it a go, I thought I'd quickly post a card I made in order to participate in the CASE Challenge posted on the WMS blog on the 25th of January, 2011.

I CASEd the supernaturally talented Mona Pendelton's DT project entries of the 21st of January, 2011.  My card is an inspired creation mixing two of her genius offerings:  Mona's first layout and the Thank You card from her Gift Ensemble.  Here's my first ever bash at a WMS challenge:



The Best Balm card:


  • Stamps:  Waltzingmouse Stamps Rescue Remedies and Crafty Secrets Artsy Banner
  • Paper:  Papertrey Ink Fine Linen and Vintage Cream, Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather DP
  • Ink:  Memento Sweet Plum, Tim Holtz Distress Ink Old Paper and Antique Linen
  • Accessories:  Spellbinders Nestability Labels 4 Die, Vintage Crochet Lace, Brown Gingham ribbon, Jute


It has been a real joy!  Thank you for stopping by. x
